Ready for some St. Patrick’s Day shenanigans?
As restrictions begin to ease up, we’re in a much better place than we were last year. There’s good news about vaccines and indoor dining has resumed, so this St. Patrick’s Day, there’s quite a few options open. While it’s important to stay safe and adhere to all safety regulations, we’ve still got you covered if you’re in the mood for beer, beer, and more beer. Also, let’s not forget about delicious and hearty Irish food. Here are 7 places that you can go for to experience some luck of the Irish.
1. Brewligans Pub House
Brewligans has got a lot of different Irish food to choose from this year, as well as a few speciality brews. They’ve got Irish Coffee (with your choice of whiskey), green beer, and Guinness on tap. For food, try their breakfast rueben stacked with corned beef, eggs, and bacon, or their Detroit reuben with 1000 island dressing. Plus, they’ll be hosting DJ Goliath as he plays some live music, which has been sorely missed. What else could you need? The party starts at 7am on Wednesday the 18th, so check their Facebook to reserve.
Where:2385 Fort St, Trenton, MI 48183
2. Cork & Gabel
Cork & Gabel is an Irish meets German meets Italian eatery, but you’ll want to check them out on St. Patty’s Day if you want some low-key but delicious Irish food. Try their Bangers and Mash, swimming in a delicious gravy and topped with onion straws and green onions, and don’t skimp out on a refreshing beer.
